KAY KENDALL. Vintage 8×10 glossy black and white still portrait from Les Girls (1957), pictured with co-star Gene Kelly, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “To Roy/Kay Kendall.” Fine condition, faint surface impressions and mild creasing along the top edge, not noticeably detracting from the overall appearance of the image. The vivacious, fondly-remembered British comedienne appeared in 27 films, graduating from unbilled bits to leading lady before her death from leukemia at the age of 33. Signed photographs are extremely scarce.
